Easy Avocado Whip
1 ripe avocado, mashed or whipped smooth
1/4 lime, squeezed
Pink Himalayan salt, pinch
Fresh ground black pepper, pinch
Chopped fresh herbs, for garnish
Wash the outside of the avocado and carefully slice it in half the long way using a sharp knife. Avocados have big, round pits in the center so don’t expect your knife to sail all the way through.
Twist the halves apart. Hover the knife blade a few inches over the pit and quickly bring it down. It will stick into the pit and you’ll be able to easily remove it from the avocado flesh.
Use a spoon to scoop the avocado into a bowl with high walls.
Add lime, salt, and pepper.
Mash everything together until it is creamy. Note: If you don’t have an avocado masher, you can use a fork, a whisk, or even a potato masher to get the job done. You could also toss it all into a small blender for an extremely smooth whip.
Add the whip to your meal of choice and garnish with fresh herbs.
